My favorite genre is mystery/thriller. I don’t read much historical books. I have read 3 historical mystery-thrillers so far. I have read Mistress of the Art of Death
by Ariana Franklin, The seven deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle
by Stuart Turton, A Curious Beginning
by Deanna Raybourn.
I have absolutely loved these books. Each of these books has a unique narrative. In the first one, the mystery is surrounding a serial killer narrated from a medical examiner’s perspective. In the second one, the unique storytelling is that the murder repeats itself until the protagonist can solve it. That is also replete with hints and clues. In the third one, the mystery is solved while the protagonists are on the run, barely escaping the murderer. Usually mystery thrillers are intertwined with a romance plot. It gives the characters an edge as to protect their beloved before the killer strikes. I recommend the above mentioned books as amazing mystery thrillers. They kept me guessing till the end. I would give them 4 out of 4 stars.
